Mercy of the Sea
The famous Bad Eddie shipwreck on Magerclogher Strand, Bunbeg, Gweedore, Donegal, Ireland. This amazing wreck was stranded during the 70's rumour has it a husband grounded this boat in spite of a bad divorce from his wife who was trying to claim half this boat through the courts! He grounded the ship and said to the wife afterwards 'theres your half' amazing story I thought lol

Doorway to Cill Chriosd - Christ's Church or Kilchrist
Cill Chriosd Christ's Church or Kilchrist is a ruined former parish church of Strath , on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. It was constructed around the 16th century, replacing an earlier Medieval church on the same location, and was used until 1840 when the Parish church was relocated to Broadford. It lies on the B8083 Broadford to Torrin and Elgol road. The ruins of the church lie at the top of a small mound, surrounded by the graveyard. It has been described by Miers as The long, low, rubble ruin of the post- Reformation parish church of Strath has roughly dressed quoins and jambs, and a balustraded burial enclosure added to the east gable in the early 18th century for the Mackinnons. Records from 1913 show that there were a pair of unusual gravemarkers in the graveyard - one dedicated to Chief Lachlan Mor and carrying 'obscure hieroglyphics', the other possibly dating from the pre-Christian era. However, both have since vanished. Most graves are connected to Clan MacKinnon, and are from the 18th and 19th centuries. One memorial, in the inner wall of the burial enclosure, is for 'Charles Third', who was apparently born in Corry near Broadford as a MacKinnon but later died in Australia after emigrating. A worn medieval slab carved with an ornate cross is located in the south corner of the graveyard. The churchyard also has an amorial stone, as well as a possible fragment of the necking and lower arms of a crude cross, with one side plane and the other side bearing two animals carved into a relief on the lower portion. The graveyard also contains a slab of slate with a foliated cross, with one side preserved but the other side worn away.
